Back in May 8, 2018, I played a band called B Boys.
Brendon Avalos of the band is going on his own with Gift Wrap.
While B Boys‘ music is very punk rock.
Gift Wrap is the opposite which is more on the lo-fi new-wave pop style of music.
Have a look at the music video for Losing Count.
Losing Count drops on March 2, 2018 via Captured Tracks / Omnian Music Group
The wait is over! After a three year drought!
Rich Aucoin dropped a new single plus music video for Release!
The track is instrumental but it has that Euro-electro dance vibe a-la Daft Punk.
Rich Aucoin’s “Release” was directed by Dave Hung, who worked on Kanye West’s infamous Famous video, and was shot on four separate occasions off the coastline of Nova Scotia.
Hold – EP drops on March 16, 2018!
On the January 8th show of No Filter.
I played a track from Minneapolis, Minnesota’s Nadine.
Today she released the third single Pews which is taken from the upcoming album Oh My dropping on Janauary 26, 2018 via Father Daughter Records.
Nadine says the track is a jazzy avant-pop song about chaos and spirituality.
Trace Mountains which is the project of LVL UP‘s Dave Benton, today has released the single “Turn Twice.”
It is taken from his debut full length album, A Partner To Lean On which drops on March 30, 2018.
If you like lo-fi pop rock with some potty language and easy listening music.
Unlike his older solo material, on A Partner to Lean On Benton enlisted the talents of his friends, including Kyle Seely (of Sheer Mag on drums), Jim Hill (of Painted Zeros on electric guitar and synthesizer), Nick Corbo (of LVL UP on bass), and vocal contributions by Susannah Cutler (Yours Are The Only Ears) and Ben Smith.
It’s been awhile since I last heard from Toronto’s (Ottawa ex-pat) Rolemodel.
Surprise! Surprise! Lone Wolf came out on January 1st to kick off 2018!
A nice ambient electronic dream pop track, reminds me of St. Lucia.
Check out this Toronto act called Tree Speak.
It is the brainchild of Josh Horner.
Releasing a two-track single back in late December.
Indie pop rock music similiar to Vancouver’s Peach Pit.

Cecil Frena who used to go by Gobble Gobble and Born Gold.
Looks like he sticking it out on his own name.
It is a 180 turn from the electro-dance to more punk rock.
The Gridlock will drop on February 9 2018.
I decided to pick the second single All Of My Heroes.
It has that Weezer-esque sound with that added lo-fi style.
